Hi everyone. From the middle of last year to up until a few months ago i used to do weightlifting quite a bit and made some reasonable progress. Anyway everything has been packed away in storage because of moving house, and i just got some weights out at my mates house last week. The thing is when i do them, i dont do that many and then like my arms feel shaky, not tired just like say ill do however many reps, put them down, then 5 minutes later pick them up again and my arms will feel dead shaky for a bit. I cant really remember this happening before so is it just because i havent done any for a bit, or does it just happen sometimes? My mate says its because havent done any for a bit, but he doesnt really know anything lol so i thought id ask.

Better than having a brain that has been washed of any sense and replaced by vile teachings, eh?

The funny thing is, if you ever hear a pro-bodybuilder talking about the human body and working out and all that semantic field contains (hormonal and steroidal reactions, enzymes, glycolysis, protein synthesis, etc.) it's like hearing a microbiologist talk.

Hardly the domain of imbeciles.

Surely if he was just pointing out a stereotype in a sarcastic way in the same way you were, he hates you no more than you hate bodybuilders?

That's my point. You were pointing out a stereotype about bodybuilders in a sarcastic way, and he then proceeded to do the exact same thing to you. If your pointing out of a sarcastic stereotype was in no way hateful, then how was him doing the exact same thing to you hateful? And if him doing it to you was in no way hateful, then he couldn't be following the example of someone he hates.
